I got married last June and cannot seem to figure out how to change it on my profile. Why do we not have that access?

Hi Britney, I think the reason we don't have access to change the name in our accounts is due to the record keeping requirements that Compassion has as a nonprofit. The ladies at Compassion who manage this site can help you change the last name on your account though :). Would you like to change your last name to Mensing?

Hi Britney, 
Adam is correct. You do not have a way to change your name online because of the way tax credit is applied. Tax laws prohibit us from allowing sponsors to change the name on their own account, but we would be happy to change it for you! What would you like your name changed to?
